What Students Are Saying

3.30 Average Rating
Learn each and every building, get to know the teachers and staff. Become the school, make your time the best time.
Jesula from Fort Myers, FL
Apply, turn in paperwork, and register for classes as early as possible. It's harder to take certain classes with the best professors and at good times if you wait too long to register for class. And if Edison tries to tell you you're missing credit when you know for certain that you're not, fight for yourself until the very end.
Jessica from Lehigh Acres, FL
* If you need to take remedial classes complete them ASAP!! They will prevent you from getting into your important classes. Get them out of the way and take advantage of the Learning Lab if you need help.
* Get you papers/transcripts/FAFSA stuff done EARLY!
* Keep copies of everything you've turned in.
* Certain campuses run out of classes faster than others. Find out what the popular classes are and if you need one of them try to get into them as soon as your eligible. Especially if one is a prerequisite for another!
*See an advisor wayyy before the first day of any registration date. Otherwise you'll have to wait in line for awhile. If it can't be helped, bring something to do.
*Financial Aid is hectic towards the beginning of a new semester. You can check to see if your FAFSA has been received and processed through your Portal.
*Read your E-mails.
Former Student from Naples, FL
Always ask around about professors, you can get an awesome teacher or a really inadequate teacher for the same subject. The great teachers really are great, they really want you to learn succeed and do well. The not-so-good teachers, well, you should just avoid them completely. Also, get involved with clubs and organizations, it's really fun, you make good friends and it looks great when you transfer to another school! Phi Theta Kappa is an honors society on campus that gives scholarship opportunities to transferring students!
Nicole from Cape Coral, FL
Get your financial aid in as soon as possible.
Look up the classes you plan on attending.
Misty from Stuart, FL
The students here seem shy, but do not be fooled. Talk to anyone and they will happily invite you to converse at length. Be bold, if you will, for at Edison you are amongst a multitude of soft-spoken (as well as multi-talented) innovators.
Sarah from Lehigh Acres, FL
Make sure you get all your paperwork in on time. The financial office tends to be a bit sloppy with your paperwork, so have copies of everything just in case. Financial aid seems to come in a couple weeks late (sometimes 1 month flies by), so brace yourself. Also, academic advisors tend to be extremely busy most of the time, so schedule a meeting with them well in advance (weeks ahead). If you have morning classes, come to school 30 minutes to 1 hour earlier so you can park closer to your classroom. Try not to fool around a lot; it's easy to get lost in your material.
Angelica from Fort Myers, FL
Always talk to the professor before taking the entry level class to see if you can skip it or test out.
